Viewpoint & Objectivity


Reference: Objectivity of Space & Time
  1. Time is the ordering principle.

  2. We view time when we view order.

  3. We view order among parts through the view of whole.

  4. The order becomes more balanced as the context broadens.

  5. The viewpoint develops from personal to universal.

  6. A personal viewpoint is narrow when it is looking through personal bias, prejudice, fixed idea, assumption and blind faith. We may call it a “self-centric” viewpoint.

  7. A universal viewpoint is broad when it is inclusive of all things from which to view. We may call it a “scientific” viewpoint.

  8. Formation of viewpoint begins with physical sense experience.

  9. The physical sense experience consists of electrical impulses arriving at the brain through physical sense channels.

  10. The physical sense experience is interpreted into ideas and images by genetically programmed associations in DNA.

  11. The mental sense develops as it interprets order among these ideas and images through an intuitive sense of logical consistency.

  12. The overall context broadens as the physical and mental experience broadens.

  13. Logical inconsistencies present themselves as the overall context broadens.

  14. Objectivity develops as logical inconsistencies are resolved.

  15. And viewpoint develops from “self-centric” toward “scientific”.

The logical consistency is determined within a personal context at first. As the context broadens toward universality, the logical consistency improves to become increasingly objective.

Viewpoint is objective when it is logically consistent within a broad universal context.
